One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

I have always wanted to get started at making my family a healthy, homemade granola. What prevented me, was the cost of healthier foods. Finally, I made it. We love it. The only problem now is I am out of honey. I made this batch with organic cranberries, flax seed, and lots of healthy ingredients. It took a while to collect the ingredients when they were on sale, but it was worth it. We only buy raw honey from local people now. The nice part about making this, is you can pretty much mix it up with what you like. I was out of walnuts, and had a small bag of pecans in my freezer. It worked nicely in our granola.
Baking the granola was all I could muster up. We are slowly recovering from sickness around here, and the antibiotics are not doing so well with my stomach.
